To use a wired connection, you can connect your device directly to the wall socket. Authentication (login) is also required to activate the internet. You must log in with your student account ([email protected] + password). See this guide for the procedure for Windows 10.

You obtain your student account from the university at the start of studies. More information about student accounts can be found on the USN website for IT-services.

To connect several devices to the internet at the same time, a switch must be used. The tenant must obtain this him or herself. See this guide for the procedure.


This is the guest network for USN. When you connect to this you will see guidance on how to register for 12 hours access.

WiFi: Eduroam

This is the same wireless network that you will find on campus (in addition to a number of other locations). To log in to eduroam, you must use your student account ([email protected] + password). You obtain your student account from the university at the start of studies. More information about student accounts can be found on the USN website.
